OK, you can either base your arguments on your own theological assumptions or on the RCC's. I'm uninterested in trying to correct what you're saying if you're just speaking from personal belief. That's obviously your prerogative. If what you're trying to do it undermine the RCC on some sort of formal moral or philosophical grounds, you have to first understand what those grounds are as described by the RCC. So if this debate is about your own personal beliefs, I'll bow out and wish you well. If you're interested in trying to get at the RCC position on these matters, I'm happy to help.Greatest I am wrote:"First, the RCC's position is not based on "human sacrifice,"
It is completely based on the human sacrifice of Jesus.
To say that God was the one to die on the cross would be silly as we all know that God cannot die.
Take Jesus' death and sacrifice out of the apostles creed and there is not Christianity.
To put it another way, if you want to knock down strawmen, that's all you. I'm only interested in showing how they're strawmen (or where you're question-begging).
